This has almost nothing at all to do with weight loss, but it does have something to do with health. Why? Because this will make you laugh and laughter is healthy, and it uses up calories.
My husband Charles does a pretty decent Steve Urkel. If you don't know who Steve Urkel is, you are either very, very young, or very, very reclusive and television phobic. 'Nuff said about that.
He was challenged to do the ALS ice bucket challenge and to make a donation. We sent a check and he wanted to make his video of the challenge fun and interesting to watch. He also wanted to nominate a lot of influential people he knows (we aren't influential, but we know folks!), in the hopes of getting more donations. So, he decided Steve Urkel would do the challenge for him. He nominated former mayor of San Antonio Ed Garza, former mayor and now HUD secretary Julian Castro, and his twin brother and our Congressman Joaquin Castro (all of whom went to high school with him). He also nominated his little brother Marc, who is a Via Transportation board member, and Cary Clack, who is a very popular San Antonio journalist and P.R. rep for our current mayor, Ivy Taylor. Oh, yeah...and my little brother Woody, who is well...not influential at all unless you are a kid and like fart jokes.
Lastly, he nominated Jaleel White, the actor who played Steve Urkel on TV.
I hope you like the video I made of him doing his challenge. It really is funny!
Sigh...I"m not sure the links work on here. If they don't, go to youtube.com and type in Pseudo Urkel takes the ALS challenge. It will come up. Enjoy!
